Ever wondered about studying or working at Edge Hill University?
Future U have teamed up with Edge Hill University (EHU) and the Lancashire Enterprise Adviser Network to organise an event for secondary pupils to showcase EHU as a place of study but also as an employer, with particular focus on the creative and digital sector and the role of a Social Media Manager. The aim of the event is for pupils to understand and gain more information about their future study options and potential careers.
The event was originally planned to take place on campus with joint delivery from EHU and Future U. Obviously this can’t happen in the current circumstances, but we were still keen to run with it so have made the event online.
The event will take place on the following days, to access the event please click the relevant day (you only need to attend one)
Make sure you click on the link 5 – 10 minutes before scheduled start time so that you can make any adjustments to your settings that you need to. It is recommended you access the event using Chrome and if possible use headphones.
Please see below a programme for the day;
